The Doom Chart for December 2018

Doom Chart 

"The two most joyous times of the year are Christmas morning and the end of school."  ~ Alice Cooper

Christmas has passed, and most schools are out on winter break, but I think Alice could agree, the third most joyous time of year is Doom Chart release day. December chart is here. We say it every year, but 2018 will go down in the books as one of the busiest and best years of quality heavy underground releases. Hell, one could argue the current decade will go down as the best of all time due to the ease of discovery and accessibility afforded by the world wide web and social media. We are here to do our part by sharing what the collective mass of various music junkies involved here at the Doom Charts has been digging. Despite the urge to just go straight into a “best of the year” type list, we figured it would be fair to include December as a typical month since there is 12 of them in a full year. December tally yielded 344 different albums sent in by almost 30 of our fellow contributors. To make it this month an album needed at least 4 votes and the higher the ranking the more weight as usual. #1 pick had 11 votes out of nearly 30 different lists for a feel for the competition we see each month. All picks are sent in with non-biased passion by our contributors who have been faithful at sharing what they are digging during the month.

Welcome to Doom Charts, representing some of the finest bloggers, journalists, radio, podcasters and album reviewers from the doom-stoner-heavy underground around the globe.  Each month, our critics submit their picks for the best new doom, sludge metal, stoner-psychedelic and heavy rock albums.  The results are compiled and tabulated into the chart below.  This is a one-stop shop for the best new albums in the world…

Sure. You’ve all been grooving to those albums for a while now. But I still wanted to get the word out that the December Doom Charts have been out there for a few weeks… Just like the Top 100 of 2018… Which we will also post in a few seconds! Go check’m out! Check’m all out!
